If you do not know how it feels getting stared at with the intense voyeuristic (or hate) stare, the obtrusiveness can be hard to transmit to you. In other words, it can be difficult for me (or other amputees) to make you aware of how it feels.

Luckily we found a way to visualize this.

A new USC [link] study [1] is proposed to show that watching different bodies causes the brain's network to process hard.

Now, who'd a thunk that. I cannot say that comes as a surprise. While the study appears to examine what happens while the brain "viewed" "different" bodies, we already have some good ideas about what happens after the brain "viewed" "different" bodies.

It is necessarily so, that, from experience alone, we must conclude that those brains went absolutely ape shit before whatever it is that is documented here: see, for example, AbaGoffmanCloerkes or whoever else. All these often quite visible reactions to "viewing" "different" bodies require prior brain activity.

More explicitly, before a person starts to feel stressed by an amputee's presence, and before they start to exhibit sweating, aversion, disgust, helplessness or whatnot (cf. GoffmanCloerkes), their brains will light up. Before fetishists start to stare and get drawn into their own cycles of weirdness (cf. Abaetc.), these individuals' brains - as we must assume - will start to spark and jolt. So even without fMRI, yes, there is them things going on for sure in them brains of them people staring at them amputees. We knew that.

It is in this day and age that they still go there and apply fMRI to these brains and, the results seem to show just that. But let us have a closer look what there is they really want to tell us.
